  Welcome to National Authority for Remote Sensing & Space Sciences

NARSS is the pioneering Egyptian institution in the field of satellite remote sensing. NARSS is an outgrowth of a Remote Sensing Center, established in 1971 as an American-Egyptian joint project that was affiliated to the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology. In 1994 the Authority was established as an organization under the State Ministry of Scientific Research to promote the use of state of the art space technology for the development of the country and introducing High Tech capabilities in regional planning and other applications. NARSS includes two major sectors: Remote Sensing and Space Sciences. The sector of remote sensing works on the use of data provided by earth observation satellites and various airborne sensors to produce maps and spatial data for the evaluation and monitoring of natural resources, natural hazards and management environmental. The sector of space sciences is concerned with the development of sensors for earth observation to be mounted on satellites and with all the problems involved with monitoring communication with satellites and retrieving the information for processing, and ultimately on launching an Egyptian remote sensing satellite.

The project aims at integration of both TDI photosensor, TMA optical design with ultrahigh scale processing logic (FPGA) to produce space qualified miniaturized camera system achieving high resolution with low weight and less dimensions. Based on outcomes from previous STDF granted project “Space qualified camera computer,(2013-2015)” the photosensor is integrated on board the device, allowing more integrity ,less dominions , low weight and more compactness in the system. The optical system is designed and Manufacturing of optical system is carried out in Egypt. The product is one channel space qualified satellite panchromatic camera system based on state of the art technology in optics, electronics, and image processing techniques; a spin-off of this activity is design documentations, sources codes of embedded algorithms, check and test equipment and hardware circuit diagrams. .
